Liberty advises the management team of PEI Group on its further funding from Bridgepoint for their next stage of growth

Liberty Corporate Finance is delighted to announce they have advised the management team of PEI Group, the leading international provider of information, insights, and events for the global alternative private assets market, on the reinvestment by Bridgepoint.

Liberty are a joy to work with. Sharp, responsive, deeply understanding of our team’s objectives and values. They bring unique knowledge and confidence gained on the inside of a wide range of relevant transactions. We trust them to protect our interests but also to find the pathways that strike the right balance and close the deal.

Tim McLoughlin
Chief Executive Officer of PEI Group

Following five years of support from BDC, Bridgepoint’s small mid cap fund, PEI has grown substantially in the period, tripling revenue and quadrupling EBITDA, to a scale where it can now attract further funding from Bridgepoint’s larger buyout fund, Bridgepoint Europe VII.

The new investment is being committed alongside a meaningful reinvestment from existing investors, management and BDC and will fund both organic and acquisitive growth of the business.

It has been great to see the remarkable growth delivered by Tim and the whole team at PEI Group over the past 9 years and to work with them during that time. The acceleration in their growth trajectory over the period since BDC invested in 2018 has been particularly impressive. We are confident they will continue on that path with further backing from Bridgepoint!
